Homecoming Week Kicks Off
Rain did not put a damper on the UHD President's Barbeque.
Instead, the festivities were moved inside and the UHD Community enjoyed lunch served by UHD President, Dr. Juan Sánchez Muñoz and the University Administration.
Homecoming is a recent UHD tradition now entering its fifth year. Students, alumni, faculty, staff and the community come together to celebrate the spirit and pride of UHD Gators. This year’s theme, “Can’t Hide Our Gator Pride,” embodies the spirit, honor and grit of being a Gator at UHD.
This year’s festivities run through Saturday, Oct. 20.
Check out Homecoming 2018 scenes from the President's Barbeque and Gator Spirit Frenzy. For a complete schedule 2018 Homecoming Week activities, visit www.uhd.edu/homecoming.
